    I think we could probably all agree (well, most of us) that there has been an increasing level of frustration (and sometimes anger) under the Obama administration. It's what got the House and Senate back in GOP hands.

    If Clinton is victorious this fall, those who were frustrated and angry will likely become apoplectic. That anger is only going to increase under Clinton, and we could see people metaphorically foaming at the mouth over what she tries to implement.

    A Trump victory would undo much of this. Any frustration from the right would be intraparty, not directed solely at the Democrats. Any internal squabbling will only go so far.

    The Democrats will be upset, of course, but they haven't had 8 years of frustration. They can make it.

    As long as Trump doesn't go completely off the rails, a Trump administration may be the better option for national unity (as crazy as that sounds).

    Advantages of a Trump Presidency:

    The State of the Union address will be 140 characters (or less) in length and won't have any words with more than two syllables in it.

    Alex Jones will go out of business claiming a lack of material.

    When the inevitable crises occur, Trump won't interrupt prime time TV with pesky addresses to the nation.

    Budget deficit will dip slightly as rent from a booked solid Lincoln bedroom will flow into federal coffers.

    There will be no Trump cable TV channel, after all.

    First Lady Melania Trump's official White House cause will be to educate millennial slackers on fashion sense.

    Mike Pence will be President.

    I like this post but I don't agree with it. A Trump win would not unify the country, anything but. If he manages to win, he will have defeated the Democratic Party, including Hillary, the MSM and the #neverTrumpers. They will not react in a gracious manner.

    The left is already frustrated - all they really have now is the executive branch, and if they lose that, their hold on the judicial branch will break. The Democratic Party is currently in shambles, especially at the state level - they already feel alienated as it is.

    If Trump wins and the Senate flips, it could mitigate this somewhat, but that's not very likely to happen.
